Alex Reid plans to keep a “dignified silence” about his split from Katie Price.
The cage fighter “regrets” the fact his 11-month marriage to the former glamour model – who released a bitter statement blaming their split on her spouse’s obsession with being in the spotlight – has come to an end but insists he will turn down all offers to speak about their relationship for the sake of her children Harvey, eight, Junior, five, and three-year-old Princess Tiaamii.
A statement released by his lawyer Nabeel Shaikh said: “Given the fact there are children involved who Alex cares deeply about, Alex hopes that people will respect his privacy at this difficult time.
“Alex regrets that, despite the efforts he has made, there is a realistic prospect that the relationship may come to an end.
“Despite numerous substantial offers of money, Alex made a decision to maintain a dignified silence.”
Katie, 32, has ensured the legal help of divorce lawyer Fiona Shackleton – who represented her when she split from Peter Andre in 2009 – in her separation from the mixed martial artist, which was announced following weeks of speculation last Tuesday.
The brunette beauty was pictured at the weekend enjoying the company of polo players at ski resort Klosters, Switzerland, but insisted she was just having fun.
She tweeted: “let of steam friday after weeks of tension. Need to improve my dancing! All harmless and the only man for me is junior. Family time now.(sic)”
